Wine Hooligans - who are they may you ask! Well, they’re a collective of five different wine brands created by different winemakers, each bringing their own personality and experience to the wines. Leading the pack is former accountant Dennis Carroll who has been responsible for recruiting his “hooligan” winemakers, each winemaking legends in their own right. This dynamic project produces wines from parcels of fruit all over the Central Coast, with the greatest respect always to the vineyard, and to the integrity of the fruit.

The Three Ball Zinfandel is produced by Christian Tietje –member of the Wine Hooligans - surfer, punk rocker, metal artist winemaker who formally started the prolific Four Vines wines in his backyard, and did rather well with it. He sold the Four Vines labels to the corporate world and, just like Dave Grohl went on to start the Foo Fighters after Nirvana, Tietje started to produce a selection of wines, including this Zinfandel, and the dazzling Sea Monster Eclectic white, also available.

Over 20 years of producing some of the state’s best Zinfandels, growers know him as the “Zinbitch” because of his commitment to only source from the best, head pruned Zinfandel vineyards and his belief that low yields produce the most remarkable wines.

The Three Bal Zin incorporates fruit from three vineyards in the best areas for Zinfandel; Amador County, Paso Robles and Sonoma. It’s a suprisingly approachable Zinfandel; all the boldness you want from the grape, but with a pleasant lift and smooth and mellow palate.  Bright boysenberry and raspberry with floral notes of dusty rose, with a leathery, cocoa dusted finish.
